libcups is in extra
and it conflicts with the upgrade of lib32-libcups
from multilib
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/multilib/x86_64/lib32-libcups/ .

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/cups/backend/usb

There are no news about it on https://www.archlinux.org/ and also not
on https://www.archlinux.de/ . After removing the existing file, the
upgrade does work.

I wanted to filed a bug report against lib32-libcups, but somebody
already did that:

I don't use cups at the moment, so I'm not sure if it's wise to run rm
as I did, if somebody wants to print.
